    main idea hand and song
    By Cathy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    In teaching main idea to my fourth graders, I have them trace their hand. In each finger, I have them write the answer to one of the 5 w questions (Who? Did What? When? Where? and Why?)based on the story or article we have just read. Once they can do this we chant a tune similar to "I've Got the Whole World in My Hands" except we sing I've Got the Main Idea in My Hand.
